property management costs in france

We work for our clients on an hourly basis, structuring costs to ensure that they receive value for money whether we are cleaning their house or smoothing the path of French bureaucracy. Some sample costs are shown on the right of this page and we are always happy to discuss the “average” likely costs involved in your particular project, whether the task is large or small.

Costs and invoicing – an overview

We work closely together with our clients, planning and prioritising their requirements. Routine work is completed and invoiced on a monthly basis, with detailed timesheets kept for their information.

We send regular updates by email of progress, together with photographs when appropriate. We are always conscious that what clients are buying from us, is “peace of mind” and that starts with making sure they are kept informed.

More details of costs, together with a specific quote, can be obtained by contacting us. Please use the email form on the contact page, or telephone your nearest area for chat.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you use price bands instead of a fixed price?

Every job or task is different. The exact charge will depend on the level of difficulty involved. For example, it is much more complex trying to negotiate with a local artisan, using technical language, than it is to query a meter reading with EDF. We communicate with you at all times, so there are no surprises at the end of the month.  Precise charges are negotiated between the couple servicing your property and you, their client.

Will I be charged for anything else?

Your first invoice will include a charge for getting two copies of your keys cut (we recommend three sets in total). If you prefer, you can provide them. Otherwise we will get that done for you.

How much will I be charged if you do less than an hour’s work?

Clients are charged per 1/4 hour. (E.g. Emails, telephone calls are often fall into this time band).

Who pays if I ask you to undertake work, for which materials will be required?

We will ask you to pay us in advance for materials, which we will then buy on your behalf, if you have not already provided them.

When and how do I pay?

Clients will receive an invoice via email at the end of each month. We ask that payment is made via a Euro cheque by return of post. This is essentially part of our monthly salary, so we ask for your co-operation in ensuring our invoices are paid promptly. We can accept payment by PayPal which works well! A quotation of current charges can be requested at any time. On your next visit to France, you will be given a paper copy of your invoice(s), and any receipts for purchases made on your behalf.
